Would be a completely uninspiring choice. So far the suggestions have not been great, I'm slightly concerned.

At the same time he's worked with the squad, so may know what he thinks is required, giving him a head start on anyone else.

The board can fcuk right off if they are even thinking about appointing Pressley!!! That would be disastrous.
Come on ye Bairns!

If it is Pressley then it has to be about money here. They won't have to pay compensation to another club and he won't be on big wages. If you remember back to Martin Ritchie's last stint as Chairman this would be in keeping with his over prudent approach...

nooooooooo!

bad choice in every regard.

we need an experienced hand to steady the ship and push us on to top 6, not gamble with a newbie.

pressley could assist but please do not let him be number 1.

Huge risk - but Hughes was an untried rookie ex centre back not so long ago.

Yeah Alba but that was in the first division. We still had to put up with his first full season at stenny which was torture. A season like that in the SPL and its hello first division.

No thanks. Bit of the Tony Adams about him for me. Talks a good game, but just feels like a (serious) accident waiting to happen.

Yeah I know. Trouble is I don't fancy any of the "usual suspects" much

6 days old and you may have seen it already but Pressley gives clear picture of his ambition here

We had to put up with his last at Westfield, which was torture. A season like that and we were 20 mins away from the First Division. :bang:

Never stopped Marsh Loaf or Falkirk Cher. Is Biggens his agent?
